Coronavirus: Thank you for your continued support in these difficult times. Since our office and factory are in a rural area, our staff travel to work individually by car and we have enough space to maintain social distancing, so in consultation with our staff, we have decided to remain open for business unless government policy changes.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, the ones listed below (that are made by other manufacturers) will not be available for a while.

Tableware (Coasters & Placemats) and Wallpaper.

Our despatch times are normal, but Royal Mail & Parcelforce delivery times are varying depending on location - some parcels arrive next day and others are taking up to 10 days, which we have no control over.

We will update this message as anything changes.

Memory Of Morley - a Memory of Morley.

I was born in July 1937 in Lord Asquith house which was a maternity home in those days.my parents were Dennis and Anne Pickersgill... They told me that I was so tiny I fitted into a shoe box lined with cotton wool..and kept on the oven door to keep me warm..no incubators back then... I graduated to my sisters doll pram...something she still never lets me forget...At that time we lived on Charles street. When I was only two we moved to London where my father was a fireman in Bounds Green Rd and we lived in the firestation there. During WW2 my mother,sister and I came up to Morley due to the Blitz, I went to school in Bruntcliffe Lane and my sister went to Beeston... I can remember getting lost in the blackout one night near St Francis Church, my aunt lived almost across the street from there but I couldn't find the house .... I remember when my grandmother died we came up on the train from London, and I stayed with some lovely people named Caulbeck ,while everyone else went to the funeral.... Many Many years later I came back to Morley with my mother for a quick visit ,we stayed at the Old Vicarage and visited my cousins who still live in Morley.. My mother remembered more than I of course since I was just a child,but just getting around I was able to point out different places I remembered... that was in about 1992.... I think you can take the girl out of Yorkshire,but you can't take Yorkshire out of the girl. as soon as I got off the plane at Leeds airport I knew I had come home.
